"Memory makes us who we are."
-- Penny Coleman
I do not remember buying this book, but I certainly remember reading it.
It was several years ago, and I was still struggling to understand PTSD and my internal struggle with it (undiagnosed) all my life.
In the book were first person narratives by women who survived their military husband's suicides. And I am reading the stories of those men and I am balling my eyes out and saying to myself, "How can their stories be so like mine!"
Then it hit me: It's easy to traumatize a child.
"In the end he did not harm enyone but himself."
